SWISCO - The Replacement Hardware Authority

Please help find window roller

A quick learner from Mesa AZ says:
I have searched high and low for replacement window slides but have not found anything that's direct replacement, some that are close but usually too big in at least one dimension. 87-036 is pretty close but too long. What say you?

Thank you for your patience in this matter. Unfortunately, after extensive research, we have determined that this roller has become discontinued, and is no longer available.

You may also want to see our 87-147, though. It's not exact, but it's worth considering.
A handy person from Arizona says:
The 87-147 does work as a replacement for what is in your photo, however it is a tad tight.

What I did was bent the window frame a tad so that the wheel would still roll. Then I lubricated the wheel. it worked just fine for my windows.
